Affectionately named the Mother and Father Falls, Trafalgar’s twin falls complement each other beautifully and give birth to numerous water basins and streams at their base.
Trafalgar is also known for its unique sulphur springs which trickle and pool warm water alongside cold, making the perfect, natural therapeutic bath.
Trafalgar Falls is another must see for visitors to the island, and it is worth experiencing the magical warm and cold water that define the uniqueness of this natural wonder.
Today, remnants of canons and slave trails faintly hint to the sites chaotic geopolitical past as visitors enjoy the fantastic views of Soufrère Bay below.
The peninsula is uniquely positioned between Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean and is a rather remarkable site. A tiny strip of sand and stone mediates ferocious Atlantic Ocean waves to the east and calm, turquoise Caribbean Sea to the west. The lookout point above, on a clear day, offers perfect views of Martinique in the distance and the steep 2000 foot cliff drop off which progresses from Caribbean blue sea into dark abyss.
Soufrière Bay below is a bustling marine eco-system and is one of the top dive sites on island. The bay is populated by a myriad of underwater creatures including sperm whales which cruise our shores year round. If you are lucky, you can see them from shore just about 50 feet away.
For this reason the Soufrière Scott’s Head Marine Reserve (SSMR) was established in 199? to preserve the ocean for the many life forms which call it home. Wether you hike the peninsula and be awed by panoramic coastal and mountain views, swim with whales in the marine reserve, or swim through bubbling sulphur vents on the shoreline, Scott’s head is definitely a place to visit on your visit to Dominica.
